Electric eels can release enough power to start 50 cars

Electric eels can create so much electricity that they could start approximately 50 cars with one massive shock of voltage. While they are called eels, electric eels aren't actually eels at all. They are a species of knife fish, very closely related to the catfish. This species of eel is so unique that it has its own genus: Electrophorus. One species of eel can create up to 760 volts of electricity with one shock.
